Florine “Flo” Mae (Haugan) Osness was born on April 8, 1929, in Wilmot, South Dakota to H. E. and Olga (Kronberg) Haugan. She resided with her family for several year in Wilmot, South Dakota before they moved to Page, North Dakota.

Flo then went on to the University of Minnesota where she studied music. Flo moved to the Dassel Cokato area where she was employed at the Cokato Hospital for many years. She was a talented musician who taught piano lessons to many children over the years. She was the Gethsemane Lutheran Church organist and accompanist for church services, weddings, and funerals. She loved music, she had a talent and understanding of music and when accompanying a soloist could transpose the key to a musical piece on the fly. She was a volunteer at the Dassel Lakeside Health Care Center and played music for the residents. Flo loved her family with all her heart. She was proud of all her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She will be deeply missed by her family and friends.
